Plus Dane secures more than £1m to boost energy efficiency of homes

PLUS Dane has secured more than £1 million from the government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund to improve the energy efficiency of 100 homes across Cheshire and Merseyside.  

The money will be invested in a number of improvements such as external wall insulation and loft insulation as well as new and innovative technologies including shared ground loops and ground source heat pumps – all designed to make homes easier and cheaper to heat for customers.  

It is estimated that customers could see an average reduction in their heating bills of £315 per year as a result of the initiative. 

Plus Dane will be investing a further £1.7m to support the project as it works towards meeting national and regional targets to make its homes more energy efficient.  

Paul Knight, Chief Operating Officer said:  “This investment comes at a time when many of our customers are struggling to afford to heat their homes so anything that we can do to make it easier for them to stay warm is welcomed.  

“We are also excited to be able to begin using some of the new technologies that will be essential to us meeting our carbon reduction targets in the future.” 

Plus Dane was part of two consortia that were successful in securing funding with Liverpool City Region Combined Authority securing £11.1m to improve around 1,250 homes across the region, while Cheshire East Council will receive £1.6m to improve 162 homes.
